Something politically incorrect and over generalized (if there is such a term) but so much truth within and so funny :-) I think that perhaps the Red --> Asians part should be changed to Red --> Malaysian Chinese !! LOL

Was sent to me by Dr. Haiwan a week ago- whom BTW, I had the pleasure of spending 2 days with catching up ....(BTW he is still in New Zealand - somewhere in Mystery Creek, Hamilton.. for FIELDAYS) Too tired to blog much about our road trip to Hamilton except to say I got soaked numerous times due to the rain. i also took 20 minutes or more to find my car (so crowded) ... and I had to do it in the rain too (for yet another soaking). But it was pretty fun in a strange way. Even bought an emu oil product for my wife ....
